grapevines




once we were upon upon
like gobbled up sandwiches
thin and thick
the two of us
pale and tan
touching your hand accidentally 
on that railing
it was
good!

tinglesbreathholding
gulp

wooden walls 
inside and up
stairs
your labryinth garage
earthly sweet
like healthy hearts
i slid my palm to feel 
smoothness, dead trees
warm shelter
you.

the tormented ways
we flounder 
we fall
together, apart
living longer
 faces drooping
learning
exploding
growing
up up out away
apart

a deep craving 
buried now
beneath decades of want

kneel down
i pray
for it to crumble
like December's leaves
